The Game and the Governess

Book 1, Winner Takes All

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Trading Places meets Pride and Prejudice in this sexy, saucy romance—first in a new series from the author of YouTube sensation The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.

Three friends. One Wager. Winner takes all.

The Earl—‘Lucky Ned’ Ashby. Pompous, preening, certain that he is beloved by everyone.
The Miller—John Turner. Proud, forced to work as the Earl’s secretary, their relationship growing ever more strained.
The Doctor—Rhys Gray. Practical, peace-loving, but caught in the middle of two warring friends.

Their wager is simple: By trading places with John Turner and convincing someone to fall in love with him, Ned plans to prove it’s him the world adores, not his money. Turner plans to prove him wrong.

But no one planned on Phoebe Baker, the unassuming governess who would fall into their trap, and turn everything on its head…

Three best friends make a life-changing bet in the first book in a witty, sexy new Regency trilogy from acclaimed author Kate Noble, writer of the wildly popular Emmy award–winning web series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 28, 2014 – Noble's Regency series opener woos readers as a bored aristocrat meets his match in a clever governess. When the Earl of Ashby, Ned Granville, and his secretary, John Turner, travel to the small town of Hollyhock to examine Ned's deceased mother's property, they wager that if Ned poses as John he'll be unable to seduce a lady within two weeks. While staying at the home of Sir Nathan and Lady Widcoate, the deceivers meet a houseful of marriageable women, and Ned quickly learns how unimportant he appears as a mere secretary. He becomes intrigued by the governess, Phoebe Baker, initially seeing her as a means to win the bet but soon realizing that he is completely enamored of her. Readers will adore Phoebe, a once wealthy woman who has learned to put the past behind and find happiness in everyday life. The subtle development of romance between the devil-may-care earl and the proper governess is the impetus behind this winning novel, complete with rich characters and a multi-dimensional plotline.
